Interview With Justice John Paul Stevens

Justice John Paul Stevens was nominated to the bench by President Gerald Ford. He has served as a Supreme Court Justice since 1975. He was preceded by Justice William O. Douglas. In this program, Justice Stevens takes us on a guided tour through the three distinct parts of his Chambers. He starts out in the area where his law clerks work, then takes us into the area where his assistants sit as he talks about many personal items on the walls. Finally, Justice Stevens takes us into his private chamber to talk about other personal items in his office as well as the role of a Supreme Court Justice and his thoughts on the process that unfolds at the Court.
